The importance of creating a will

It can be difficult for New Mexico residents to think about their mortality. However, it can be vitally important to create a will as soon as possible. A will allows a person to dictate who takes care of a minor child or a pet. It can also allow a person to dictate who receives assets such as a car or money in a bank account.

Online posts as evidence when couples split up

New Mexico residents involved in a divorce process might be concerned with the role evidence from social media accounts can play. As an increasing number of people have at least one social media account, posts from these accounts are often admissible by courts as evidence to prove infidelity, hidden assets and matters that affect custody cases.

Are your will and estate plan up-to-date?

Creating a will and estate plan is one of the best ways a person can make their wishes for their property clear to those they love, doing away with potential confusion and conflicts. A strong, updated will and estate plan offer protections to property while establishing a legally enforceable record that clarifies your wishes. Individuals in your inner circle will not develop inaccurate, conflicting ideas about how to care for your property when you pass away.

Financial woes and filing for bankruptcy

In New Mexico and across the United States, many people experiencing unexpected life changes try to avoid filing for bankruptcy. Some credit card companies may accept smaller payments and forgive the rest of the amount owed. However, filing for bankruptcy may help debtors get back on track financially. The first step is to determine whether a person meets the financial qualifications to file for bankruptcy.

Two-year investigation leads to indictment

People who live in New Mexico and find themselves facing serious criminal allegations can understandably find this type of situation scary and uncertain. However, it is important to remember that the laws in the state and the United States require that all people have the opportunity to appropriately defend themselves against any type of criminal charge. An arrest and even an indictment is by no means a guarantee that a defendant will be found guilty of any charge or forced to endure any criminal penalties.
